How Does Shockwave Work?

It involves the use of a medical device to pass shockwaves through the skin to the injured part of the body. The shockwaves are generated by a projectile that is propelled at high speed inside a hand-held applicator.

As the shockwaves enter the body, they initiate an inflammatory-like response in the injured tissue that is being treated. This prompts the body to respond by increasing blood circulation, stimulating the body’s natural healing process, and breaking down calcium deposits in tendons.

What makes it unique is that it is one of the very few technologies that seems to work best when an injury reaches the chronic state. This shockwave appears to be able to jump start the healing process in chronic injuries and move them back into the acute phase of healing.

Back Pain

If you have back pain, whether new or long-term, you know how it can interfere with your daily life.

Knee Pain

If you have knee pain, you’re not alone. Frequent knee pain affects around one in four adults.

Neck Pain

From a wry neck to arthritis, muscle spasm to a ‘dowager’s hump’, necks are a common source of pain.

Shoulder Pain

Under normal circumstances, the shoulder has the greatest mobility of any of the body’s joints. But when something goes wrong, it can mean pain, limitation and frustration.

Sciatica

Sciatica refers to pain that runs from the low back into the buttock and down the back of the thigh. It may go below the knee and into the foot.

Heel Pain

There are many causes of heel pain. These include plantar fasciitis, Achilles tendinosis, heel spurs, and stress fractures.

I have seen Aisha for a Mummy MOT and subsequent treatment over a period of months. She has a holistic approach and I have found her support amazing. I would have no hesitation in recommending her.

I have seen Anthony a couple of times now and I am beyond happy. I have been suffering a year of pain, I have previously seen other osteopaths and doctors and I have had numerous trips to A and E. Anthony is highly experienced in his profession, he cares about you as a patient, really understands your issues and concerns and is genuinely there to help you get better. I wish I had known about Anthony sooner and not wasted my time with other establishments. After 2 sessions I am on a slow road to recovery and I can’t wait to go again. For me, Anthony is going to be able to give me my life back this year.

I had a fantastic first appointment with Aisha for a Mummy MOT - I would highly recommend this to anyone who has had a baby no matter how recent or how long ago. She was incredibly knowledgeable and made me feel really well listened to. The building and location was great, easy parking and friendly receptionists.

I keep coming to Daniel and he keeps fixing me. I am an older runner and have had a few injuries in recent years. I started to see Daniel when I could not get an urgent physiotherapist's appointment. His gentle manipulation and exercises cured an annoying and persistent hamstring injury which had been going on for many months, and a sore hip. Since then he has treated, most effectively, my runner's knee and other complaints. I enjoy our sessions as he takes a real interest in his patients. Daniel will always be my no. 1 therapist!
